Well I busted up my Dana 44 axle so I decided to up grade my shafts I looked at a lot of shafts and wanted this to be the last time. I chose the RCV alloys with a 6 ball CV Joint rather than a ujoint This is not a bolt in swap it takes some machine work to make them fit in some cases (as in mine Thanks Winton!!) But I have it done now so here goes the test hope its the end of broken axles this set has no tire size or horse power limitations how ever they recommend a 40" or smaller tire on a dana 44 but have a no questions asked warranty!! You break it WE buy it. That was what sold me on them

Those look nice. I up-graded the Black Jeep Cherokee Rescue Rig Dana 30 axles to CV axles from u-joints. Was hard finding the right ones where the axle seal wouldn't leak. The newer grand cherokees come with CV axles on the Dana 30. They bolted right in without any mods. Probably not as strong as those that you got, but I figured it is an improvement from the u-joints.
1988 XJ Limited 4.0L, 31X10.50R15 Hercules Traildigger, 2 7/8 lift, 10k winch Less then 1% of the world is paved roads, you'll need a 4x4
ha ha thats funny guys I think they will hold up the turning is tighter I can turn till the caliper hits the coilover now a lot tighter than a u joint I can get dealer pricing on these axles but there still not cheep. I also had to upgrade the hubs to 30 spline I hope the hub breaks first. if not the ring and pinion will be the weak spot

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
